How to decorate with yellow

In its wide range of tones and shades, yellow is a versatile, warm and inviting color. As a color scheme, it energizes the spirit and uplifts the soul. It’s also a great color that complements a number of different rooms. Here's how to use yellow in your home...

Yellow combines beautifully with blues and violets, as these cool hues offset its warm nature.

Yellowish neutral

A pale yellow tone reads as a neutral hue. This creamy color can be used as your dominant wall color in lieu of more traditional colors such as beige or warm white. Pale yellow walls don't come across as yellow, instead, this color recedes into the background, offering a subtle brightness that is both warm and inviting. If you want to use yellow throughout the house, using pale yellow wall color in the main areas of the home.

Bright yellow

Bright yellow is a vibrant and lively color that is both bold and energizing. This bright shot of color is best used as an accent. Decorative throw pillows, fresh flowers and other accessories are brilliant accent piece choices. If you’re looking to make a bigger impact, bright yellow may also be used as an accent wall color. This is also a neat color option forchildren's bedrooms.

Mustard

A more mature shade of yellow, mustard offers brightness in a subtle, more grown-up way. This color can work great for master bedrooms and living rooms. Mustard works well with blue. For a masculine edge, combine it with navy. It can also look younger and more vibrant with turquoise. 

Combinations

Don’t be afraid to use yellow with other colors. It combines beautifully with blues and violets, as these cool hues offset its warm nature. To keep your room design elegant and focused, just choose which color you want as your dominant scheme, and use the other color as an accent or complementing color.
